Chelsea and Manchester United have a crunch FA Cup final tie billed for May 19, and both teams are eager to win this competition as their only silverware of the campaign.

The game will be refereed by Michael Oliver, who will be assisted by Lee Betts and Ian Hussin, with Lee Mason as the fourth official.

Neil Swarbrick will be the video assistant referee for the first time that the technology will be used in the final in the competition’s history, with Mick McDonough the assistant VAR.

Michael Oliver has overseen some controversial games against the Blues, and was in charge of the Blues losing the Carabao Cup semi-final second leg at Arsenal this season.

Chelsea fans are unhappy with the choice of Mike Oliver as the centre referee for the FA Cup final.
